dc.description.abstract A key feature of the Irish economy is the strong presence of small- to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). It is estimated that SMEs are responsible for 70% of industrial pollution across the European Union (EU). This project aimed to enhance and improve the environmental performance of SMEs in the Mid-West Region of Ireland through the development of an ecoindustrial network (EIN). The establishment of such a network, through information and resource sharing, waste minimisation and reuse, water and energy conservation, shared transportation, centralised waste collection and treatment, as well as increasing the influence of SMEs within regional planning through better communications with policy makers and the local community, had a positive outcome for the companies involved, the environment and other stakeholders within the region. en_US
